Hot Young Designers Marketing Company (HYD) designers launched their pioneer collection for Fashion Face Off 2011 on the October of last year where they made noise at the Global Pinoy Bazaar, St. James Bazaar, and Rockwell Moonlit Bazaar. A second collection was launched recently on January 25 under the same name, whose target market is the young career women who strive a balance between beauty and brain, and wish to have a striking ensemble for every occasion, day in or day out. The following are the different themed collections and their designers:

“Hello, Sexy!” by Klart Lim
Inspired by the New York City lights, this collection are mostly of party dresses made to shine on nights of glitz and glamour, bejeweled in glitter, sequins, and metallics. To accentuate the feminine curves are fit-and-flare sleeveless mini-dresses, slim-fitting party dresses with open slit sleeves, and sleeveless dresses with a v-shaped neckline and cascading ruffles, using materials such as crepe and chiffon. For the ladies who want to go out and revel in the vivacity of nightlife, this is the perfect collection to choose from!

“La Playa de Moda” by Bailey Agustin-Dava
Immediately translating to “The Beach of Fashion,” this collection is comprised of swimwear and cover-up pieces. Not to be taken in by its literal interpretation though, it also applies to its selection of dresses that need not only be confined to the summer vacation spots, but could also be a swanky fit while chilling out with friends, seeking to emulate the atmosphere of the beaches through its style.

“Mama Carine” by Renan Pacson
Inspired by former editor-in-chief of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld, one of the most influential women in the fashion industry, this collection may very well be the epitome of power and authority in the form of multi-buckled corset belts, zip-up miniskirts, and body-hugging stretch dresses. While power-dressing is a must in a working environment, fashion should not be bypassed. So for the young professionals, exude a commanding presence in style with different pieces from this collection!

Marc Blanco
Drawing inspiration from peers from the Fashion Institute of the Philippines, as well as Mikee Andrei’s and Paris Bagasao’s use of color into adapting a farfetched style from his typical, this collection could be considered a phase for breaking out of the shell by Marc Blanco. And deriving a story of his own from Glenn Close’s character in the 1987 American thriller “Fatal Attraction,” his creativity led him to use colors and prints, with pink and violet as the primary colors to make an eye-catching statement.

“The Unusual Marauder” by Jackie Maronilla-Abueg
Finding elegance in simplicity, as her design philosophy of “simple and effortless” so implies, brings out a subdued glow from any one caught in any ensemble from this collection. On the other hand, defiance of typicality transforms trouser material into practical yet chic apparel effortlessly. Believing that her designs should bring out the essence of a woman, her creations put emphasis on minimalist feministic ideals.

HYD has gone an extra mile for the second quarter shoot by collaborating with different brands to enhance the visual impact of the variety of ensembles—Bugsy’s, The Grove by Rockwell and The Bulb Studios for the venue; HD Make Up Studio and Academy for the hair and make up; Evita Peroni Philippines and Officine for accessories and shoes—as credited in the photos of all the designers.
As a pleasant surprise to those who purchased between the 25th of January and February, HYD will be raffling five pieces from the five designers featured in this post. Hope for a call any one of these days!

If you feel like going out and getting some yourself, feel free to drop by at the Fashion Fever Friday on 2012 February 03 at Studio SnR, 3rd Floor Millenium Plaza Building, Meralco Avenue (building of Office Warehouse and Brothers Burger). The designers themselves will be present to sell their collections.

When it comes to hair loss, settle for the simple and tested solution: Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion

Picture yourself waking to a chilly, pleasant morning, stepping into the shower for a nice, warm bath, and then visiting your stylist for a chic new hairdo. All is fine; perfect even, if not for one problem: there was a handful of hair strands on your pillow when you woke up. While bathing, a clump of hair actually clogged the shower. And at the salon, your stylist pointed out something akin to a clear patch of skin on your scalp. A bald spot!
Whether it’s a small patch of hair-less skin where there is supposedly hair, or a chronic fallout of handfuls of hair strands, hair loss is, without a doubt, a bothersome problem. It gets in the way of one’s daily activities and, not to mention, puts a damper on our self-confidence.
Take beauty icon Fanny Serrano, for instance, who admits to panicking upon waking to find a pillowful of hair one morning, during the peak of his career. Like any other person, Fanny then resumed to trying all sorts of hair loss remedies available in the market, from herbal shampoos to specially formulated topical and ingestible treatments. When Fanny says he’s tried everything there is in the book, he means it: he’s tried everything. To the point where, after realizing the ineffectiveness and empty promises of such treatments, he finally resorted to simply commissioning a wig for him to wear and cover up the hair loss problem he couldn’t seem to solve.
More forms of hair re-growth solutions are available in the market today, from hair transplants to laser scalp treatments, each of which cost anywhere between ten to a hundred thousand pesos – a hefty price to pay for one’s crowning glory. Because hair loss is more often than not a problem of heredity, most of those suffering from it may find that the price is worth the pay, considering alternative solutions such as undergoing a change in lifestyle or diet is out of the question.
This need not be the casehowever, and Fanny Serrano will tell you so, too. After sporting a wig for a time, Fanny stumbled upon Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion, yet another treatment claiming to solve one’s hair fall problems. No longer hopeful about such claims given his disheartening experiences with other self-proclaimed solutions, Fanny gave Novuhair a try more for the laugh of it than possibly overcoming his hair fall problems and insecurities. In the end, and if it could be said of such things, it was Novuhair itself that had the last laugh: before Fanny even noticed it, fewer and fewer hair fell on his pillow. His shower no longer clogged, and one day, his stylist pointed out a mysterious growth of baby-thin black hair on his scalp.
Made of natural ingredients such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, biotin, and rosemary, lavender, peppermint, lemon grass, and virgin coconut oil, Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion works by improving blood circulation to the scalp and increasing nutrition to hair follicles, thus spurring hair growth. It is an affordable, non-invasive, all-natural hair loss solution that outvalues all other forms of hair loss solutions: Why undergo surgery, when you can manage hair loss by massaging Novuhair onto your scalp?
In last Sunday’sepisode of Rated K, titled Iba ‘To!, two other Novuhair users shared their testimony with viewers: housewife and former owner of a pawnshop business, Mrs. Lee, and natural health advocate and businessman, Hans Palacio. They were also joined by Dr. Marcellano Cruz, a dermatology consultant of World Citi Medical Center in Quezon City who further elaborated on the causes of hair loss.
Novuhair is available at all Mercury Drug, Watson's, Rose Pharmacy, South Star, Manson, and Cory Quirino World of Wellness Stores nationwide, and online on Call 413-6570 or 0922-883-0575 and visit for more details.

About Natural Moms
Welcome to the Natural Moms by ASCOF Community!

     With all the hype, and popularity of going green and green living these days, you might wonder, “What differentiates this blog from the hundreds of other blogs about going green?”
     Well, first and foremost, Natural Moms is a community celebrating the most integral aspect of a woman that comes naturally – motherhood.  As mothers, it is natural for us to want the best for our family, especially our children. We are, after all, at the front rows to the life of each member of the family – to our children attending school for the first time, to the first sickness, the first visit to the dentist, and so on and so forth.
     Secondly, we realize that as mothers, we are given this special opportunity to change and influence the lives of our families for the better through simple yet meaningful everyday things like doing the grocery, preparing meals, choosing which products to use at home, etcetera. At Natural Moms, we aim to turn this opportunity into a responsibility – to share the wonders and benefits of organic preferences and natural choices.
     Last but not least, more than a “how to live a green life guide”, we aim to become a “why do we choose the green life example” through our own stories and experiences. Of course, we will be providing tips and helpful articles, as well as answering questions on anything related to organic products and greener living.
     We can’t do this alone though (but we will surely try); our advocacy to live greener lives starts with us and our families, but would hopefully extend to you and your unit. Every single thing we do, good or bad, has an impact on the planet and ultimately as mothers, we can exert our influence to assure that our children will have a greener earth and brighter futures – the question is, are you with us?
     This is an open invitation to you, to share in our mission of advocating greener lives in our own small but meaningful ways. Post a story, share an experience, and join in on our conversations as we start taking a more active role in the environment, health, and well-being of our children.

Freeway Gives Tribute to Lisa MAcuja-Elizalde thru National Artist Collector's Series

Being a parent of two ballerinas, Lisa Macuja Elizalde played a big part in my daughter’s life. Having Lisa a model and following her story, it saddens us to know that she will be soon retiring. Knowing Lisa and meeting her during the recital of my youngest daughter, I know that she will leave a mark before she made her final curtain.

Just like me, Freeway also values the contribution of Lisa Macuja-Elizalde when it comes to art. Therefore, Freeway, with its well-loved National Artist Collection Series pay tribute to Lisa Macuja-Elizalde thru its Freeway loves Art.

Freeway loves Art. With its well-loved National Artist Collectors’ Series, the brand has already established its name in celebrating various forms of Art by bringing creative fusion of fashion and works of art of our National Artists—literature, visual art and fashion design.  And this time, Freeway embraces another form of art that brought pride to the country, Ballet.  Freeway pays tribute to Philippines’ prima ballerina, Lisa Macuja-Elizalde.  Lisa is set to ease into retirement within the period of three years and will dance her last full-length “Swan Song Series” in a series of performances.  The production kicked off last year with “Swan Lake” and “Romeo and Juliet”.  The entire series will unfold in the next two to three years.  To support this significant event, Freeway created a special edition “Swan Song Series” sublimation tee- shirt that immortalizes the signature ballets of Lisa Macuja-Elizalde. This limited edition collection is now available in all Freeway stores nationwide.
